Hi, I recently purchased a 2006 Touring Edition 350Z and I was wondering what kind of gas should I use?

Welcome, man. :welcome:

The Internet sales guy at my Nissan store swears that he uses 87. I tried 89 and got "knock knock, who's there?"!

I use 93. See what your's likes.

What's up with this "one coat of Zaino?"

I've got a buddy who has a blue Z and he's got about 6 coats on - and man it looks deep! :irock:

I've got about 5 on my PPW, but it doesn't show it as much - but the bugs don't stick on the front end as much. :shiftdrive:

The engine is designed for higher octane, premium fuel. If you use less than that , it will knock and retard timing. Lossing power.


I had mine tuned for 94 octane, which is just around 98 RON. Runs great. No knock, pure power. :)

always go with 91+ octane... you'll regret it if you put anything lower.
